"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"

MUCH of that "something."

Finally, Rowdy B-Movie star meets a real athlete. Holly Holm was on top of her game, calculated, moving fast, controlling her breathing. Holly is a perfection of a fighter. Rousey, 6 years her junior, was out of breath halfway through the first round, "eating" punches and elbows, getting ducked on, and... taken down with ease! I wonder where did that judo gold go? Then a punch and a roundhouse... out cold! Not since the days of GSP and Bones Jones has anyone seen such a perfect performance.

Rousey did display unsportsmanlike behavior in the ring. Did not touch gloves and punched the opponent after the bell. Since her appearance in the octagon I have been saying that there is nothing special there, but all sorts of gullible individuals were soiling Facebook and Twitter with her images, gassing her head up, to the point that she decided to be none else than Patrick Swayze in the remake of the Roadhouse. Give me a break! Although I wouldn't be surprised if all of you bought tickets to see that stupidity.

I wonder what Dana White is going to say now? He previously said Rousey is the greatest the world has ever seen. Oh well, perhaps he should get out more often LOL.

She looked puffy and out of shape. Should have spent more time training and less time with word and head games --- and red carpet/talk show BS.

As long as we are spending time on such civilized activities why not show some chicken fighting or pit bulls tearing each other apart! I guess this is to be expected on a site where sometimes there's more testosterone than brains.

She always looked puffy to me. Spending more time training would not help, just like the title of the thread says, she is a one-trick pony. Her striking is non existent, she can't keep her hands up if her life depended on it. Oh yeah, they show her in some commercial hitting the pads LOL. Anyone with at least some background in boxing knows, hitting the pads and fighting are two different things. Like I said, she finally met a real athlete.

She should just retire and continue her career in B-Movies, I am sure there will be enough buffoons to continue gassing her head up telling her that she is a great actress. The same way Dana White was gassing her head up by saying she is the greatest MMA athlete the world has ever known, while she was fighting the opponents with local YMCA beginner MMA class background.

There's always the one holier than though in the group. The human fighters have a choice to do it, chickens and pit bulls not so much.

how can ronda rousey be considered a one-trick pony with 12 wins

she got her ass kicked by a better fighter, who has numerous wins in different types of fights

but that does not discount her as a one-trick pony...it just means she lost to a better fighter

He asked her out, she said no. Now he's pissed... or at least it seems that way.

And there in lies the difference, the chickens and pit bulls don't have a choice.If you consider one who does not take pleasure in seeing humans in a so called sport with practically no holds bared beating each other to a pulp event then yes, I guess I'm holier than though.These events are a sad statement on humanity.

I was watching it in a sports bar, the place is huge, even by New York standards. It was packed that night. Let me tell you, I have never ever seen so many people jumping and clapping their hands, screaming like kids when the fight was over. The roar of the crowd in Australia was some kind of something as well.

I know a lot of boxers and MMA folks, guys and gals alike, ALL of them regarded this as a much needed lesson in humility. Nearly all mentioned the absence of skill necessary to compete on this level.

This is the same person who called out Maywearher. He, actually, gave her a good answer and luckily for her the fight has never be set up as it would be career ending. Lucia Rijker, whom I have tremendous respect for, fought a man in the ring, and it ended badly. Now Rousey would last against Rijker less than 60 seconds. So do the math on the odds of Rousey vs Mayweather. I'd say it is just one punch.

How did she get to this level of arrogance and self absorption, I do not know. Probably guys like you, who are gassing her head up. I really do not want to go into personal discussion neither do I want to give you my opinion as it comes to her looks, let's just limit it all by saying that there are much better dates available, maybe not to guys like yourself... ;-) that is if you are still in the market lol.

Take a look at her Instagram post, she is not a fighter, she has no respect for herself with that vernacular.

My point is, who gives a shit? I don't understand all the ranting and badgering. Just ignore her and her fights. It seems odd to be carrying it this far on a site that's dedicated to lifting weights. Have a good one!

There are a lot of odd things going on on this site. Just ignore the thread. If it was inappropriate mods would have deleted it by now. Instead the mods have updated the name from "one-trick pony" to "Ronda Rousey, One-Trick Pony". Not everything has to be about your book or people putting ideas from your book to test.

A lot of folks in here practice martial arts and are good at it. So it might be interesting to them. So like I said, ignore the thread, buddy.

They test for everything, even cannabis. I think VADA does it for the them, maybe they have some other company now.

I don't care if MMA is discussed... my point being is that I think it funny and even odd to go on and on about her with such hate. Whatever.

Exactly. She's won by her strength in close-quarters tactics. She got beat by a boxer with a way bigger reach than her.

Better maybe, but more different than anything else.

Strength, huh, so where did that strength go to? Holly took her down with ease while she really struggled to take Holly down lol.

Rousey reach 68"
Holm reach 69"

Rousey leg reach 38"
Holm leg reach 38"

Rousey weight 134
Holm weight 134

Rousey age 28
Holm age 34

Yeah, buddy, that was a huge reach difference LMAO. I guess you are right about "more different than anything else" in a sense that Holly is a real athlete. I guess arm bar does not work all the time.

It looked to me that Holms had more reach, based on my eyeballs. Obviously you follow this shit waaayyyy more than I do. No need to be such a smug cunt about it.

The point is, she didn't just get to 12-0 (I guess 12-1 now) on good looks and head games alone.

Enjoy your vicarious pursuits and think about switching to decaf.

like they say, the match up makes the fight. Rousey 11, judo Holms, 14 boxing, Rousey Judo to Arm bar, Holms, boxing to kick boxing to jujitsu to judo, quite a MMA arsenal. I bet on HOLMes to win the easiest bet to make if you know athletics and athletic performance and the law of specificity. In her case the skill of multiple fighting techniques.

How this relates to this site, well just about everything. Rousey body lacked muscle and was outmatched in strength. Holmes body was muscular and had great strength when compaired against a same weight rival. Holmes possesed power with hands . legs and co ordinated movement.

because we have not seen her train, her muscular body must have come from some sort of HIT the very essence of this thread and site. Her skill comes from repeatative execution. When matched against a skilled componant it was evident that the match up of skill and power mixed with multiple variation of application was to much for the one trick poney. hip toss to arm bar will work on many who are not prepaired and lack strenth to defend. but when matched against a power athlete, that does not work, ask kenny florine and randy coutour, kenny lacked power and strength while randy was a beast in power and strength.

point here is what AJ had been preaching since 1971, strength will enhanse anyones performance given they have great skill.

maybe Holmes hits the weights in a HIT or power fashion, infrequently and with great intensity, in her case power of movement rather the max effort at the end of a set. I dont know but it sure looks like that to me.

She weight trains twice a week, but I would bet money that it's not HIT style weight training. Pushing the limits to failure would interrupt her recovery ability to do as much cardio, boxing, MMA practice required. Most on here who have done two HIT style workouts per week didn't have the energy to do much else, right? How could a person then do all the other training that Holm has done as well?

Good looks, wow, if I were you I'd be looking for those elsewhere lmao. You are right, she went 11-0 beating amateurs who do not know how to defend against the armbar. The women's division is still brand new for UFC, most of its athletes "decided" they are fighters later in their lives.

Laila Ali chipped in as well "Real champions do not get beat up like that" neither was she surprised for the outcome.

Good observation Brian. When boxing, training to failure is counter productive.
